That's the second reference to that movie I saw today.
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

It was an interesting choice by David Hine to tell this story from the point of view of the story's villain. Roscoe Kalashnikov made for an interesting protagonist. His insect phobia and delusions made for some really creepy moments. The panel with Kalashnikov seeing Old Ma Stringer as a giant cockroach in particular was really quite creepy.

The way that the feeling of Kalashnikov's growing fear built up over the course of the story was what made this story for me. The ending was surprising, but still fit the overall story very well. I loved the final panel, it was possibly the creepiest moment of this story and a great way to end things.

Now, I didn't say you liked it, I merely said you were the one person who could get away with saying they liked it.

I reread the issue. It was indeed an enjoyable read. Are most Spirit issues one-shots like this one? I'm intrigued.

You want the truthy answer? You hadn't posted much in a day or two and it was to call you out.

It was happy hour at the time, if there was any reasoning beyond that I don't recall. :lol:
